Aeronautical charts provide basic air navigation data. However, they also contain a great deal of data on ground features, landmarks, elevations, and information that can be used for other purposes.
Most aeronautical charts in the Map Collection are located either under a Library of Congress call number, or under the U.S. Government, Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) numbering system. The charts may be located using the Libraries' Catalog,and then retrieving the desired chart from the map drawer. (The map below shows the location of charts in the Map Room.)
